Once again failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney shows his true colors on a call with his failed presidential campaign’s donors.
President Obama today heaped praise on his defeated rival, GOP nominee Mitt Romney, saying the former governor’s record and ideas “could be very helpful” in shaping policy over the next four years
“My hope is, before the end of the year… that we have a chance to sit down and talk,” Obama told reporters in his first post-election press conference.
But even as Obama extended something of an olive branch – which some skeptics saw as disingenuous – Romney was reportedly accusing the president of doling out “gifts” to minority voters to curry their support for a second term.
“The President’s campaign focused on giving targeted groups a big gift-so he made a big effort on small things,” Romney told donors on a conference call, first reported by Maeve Reston of the L.A. Times. “Those small things, by the way, add up to trillions of dollars.”
Romney claimed Obama had been “very generous” to blacks, Hispanics and younger voters, according to the Times, insisting that the policy decisions had been a decisive factor in high turnout that tipped the scale against him.
The fact is, Mitt Romney has no one to blame for the electoral ass-kicking President Obama handed him except himself. Time and time again Mitt Romney showed on the campaign trail that he was a callow, dishonest, untrustworthy, and aloof candidate who was uninterested in the plight of the poor and the middle class, and voters saw him for what he really is: a man consumed with becoming president at all costs.
